well vacation is over in 24 hours and I will be traveling back to Korea.

It has been a great vacation.

I have been able to spend time with my family and made contact with a few friends, I have ate food that is not served in Korea,and enjoyed allot of different eating establishments. I have been to the movies a few times and, sad to say, the prices here in Texas are higher than Korea's Prices.

What has shocked me is the low cost of electronics here in the USA, Its the same as it was in Germany. Products made in Korea are cheaper in the USA than they are in Korea. What really shocked me was seeing allot of products from Japan. I saw the ps3 and the Wii and wondered if Korea will ever make their own version of it.

Sad to say but the Anna "train wreck" on tv is just pathetic. All of this news and for what?

I will def be missing wal-mart and other stores when I return to Korea.

C U in a few days.

well this is an update on what has been going on so far...

it has ben so nice to see my family. I have seen that my nephew, Steven, will be getting married in a few weeks and I am so hapy for him. His future wife is a wonderful young lady and I wish them both the best.

I have definately been watching a few movies since I have been here. The prices are alot higher that in CGV in Korea. It has been worth it.

I am suprised about my 2 year old niece, she has taken to me and the family states that she does not do alot of that. She has been such a joy to be around. I got to play uncle mike, and spoil my bothers 2 sons, I enjoed the time that we have spent together so far.

I am a little sad that my time back in the USA wil be at an end soon, but its time to get back to teaching and to Woosong University.

I have really enjoyed watching the tv shows live and not having to download them via bit torrent.

I have really enjoyed my vacation so far. I got to see "Letters from Iwo Jima" and "Notes From A Scandal" on the big screen and it was great.

I have had a few meals at Taco Bell, Jack in the Box, Ihop, and a few others. It looks like Panchos has gone out of business. I have had CiCi's pizza a few times and very much enjoyed it.

I will be going to Denton tommorrow to met some of my friends down there and picking up a few UNT T-shirts. I will also try and pick up a few more souviners.

One of my freinds wants to teach in Africa or Europe. I hope that she mkes the right choice.

C u all soon.
